Sit Back and Relax

Written by  |

O.K. the sites done. Just sit back, relax and just listen to those new clients pound on your door.

The greatest myth with the Internet is that once you have a website, people will flock to your business!! It could not be more wrong! If no one is aware of your website, why will they visit?

Sadly, many people still believe in this myth and after their website is launched, they realized that their website is not giving any return-on-investment (ROI) and eventually settle on the conclusion that Internet is hype and it does not work.

I know for a fact if you have a website and you do not promote it properly, you will have wasted money and time. Your web address should appear in ALL your advertising, on your business cards, letterhead flyers and anywhere else you can place it.

relax-internet -mythWhether you have a site or not you should list your business with every FREE directory you can find on the internet. i.e the Google business directory, Yahoo's Business etc.

You should consider writing one new article to your website each month and posting it on "Feed Burner" or "Feedzilla". Driving traffic to your site increases your rank with Google and the other search engines.

You want to get as many pages as you can on the internet to link back to your site. They are called "backlinks" and Google loves them.

Sadly there is no magic wand.

Motion Graphics... What is it??

Motion Design is a type of graphic design which uses video, audio, static images and text in multiple layers to create movies inside of movies. Basically it allows for morphing of size, shape, color, position, texture, etc. About 20% of everything you see on television comes from the work of a motion designer. Some call it the invisible art, as many television watchers are completely unaware of this component of television programming.
